Hi candi Jeza, welcome to Cruise-Chat. What do you like to do? We normally do snorkeling. The last trip to Antigua, we negotiated a tour with a vendor. He took us to Shirley Heights, the Harbour, and then to a nice beach with a bar/restaurant and picked us up at a set up time for $25/pp. We had a nice bus and about 10 couples. Tortola we did 2 or 3 snorkel trips there, all of them went over to Norman's Island area for snorkeling. Great water, really nice snorkeling. We also had a driver take us on a tour of the island for $20. He took us to a restaurant that overlooked where the Atlantic and Caribbean met, absolutely breath-taking views, toured a bit of the island then took us to a beach on the northeast corner and showed us where Jimmy Buffet wrote Cheeseburger in Paradise. Barbados, we do the Tiami Catamarans sail and snorkel. The last trip we took a cab to a beach about 1 mile south of Folkstone Underwater Marine Park, we snorkeled up to the park from where we were and had a great day. It was much less expensive taking the excursions through the ship. They charged me $95/each way for the cab fare. St. Thomas we always go over to St. John and go to Trunk Bay. Hope this helps a bit.
